Giving after your lifetime means your generosity will continue to touch the lives of children who desperately need to know the love and grace of Jesus Christ. You will help ensure that children in the care of Compassion’s local church partners receive the resources and opportunities they need to grow, thrive and ultimately overcome poverty.

Give a Gift Through Your Will

Designating a bequest to Compassion through a will or trust is one of the simplest ways to extend your legacy of hope to children after your lifetime. This giving option provides significant flexibility because your will or trust can be changed at any time.

We are ready to assist you with any questions you may have. You can call (855) 315-5019 or email [email protected].

Give a Gift Through Your Trust

You can also use trusts to reduce taxes and, if you choose, provide ongoing payments to yourself or loved ones. Trusts are legal entities that hold assets for beneficiaries to inherit eventually.

Join the Swanson Legacy Society

Compassion International is honored to recognize our incredibly generous ministry partners with membership into the Swanson Legacy Society. This exceptional group of supporters is named after the Rev. Everett Swanson, who had a heart for God’s children and founded the ministry of Compassion International in 1952.

The Swanson Legacy Society is reserved for ministry partners who have pledged a gift in their will or trust, have purchased annuities or have made beneficiary designations to care for generations of children through Compassion International.

This is such an easy way to continue affecting generations long after we’re gone. To know that we have this treasure that we’re building up now, that will continue to reap tremendous benefits for families around the world, it’s amazing. Who wouldn’t want to do that?
